Insert/Overstrike Stuck



For no reason I can determine, my Word 2003 seems stuck in the Overstrike
mode. It happened in the middle of a document I was editing.

The OVR appears on the status bar, and tapping the Insert key has no effect.
Loading a brand new document seems to have the same problem - it comes up in
permanent overstrike mode

Is there some explanation? Options. etc..?

If you mean overTYPE double click the OVR indicator on the status bar.
